Inflammation is a defence mechanism that responds to diseases and infections. It is your body to attempt to localise the offending factors such as bacteria and viruses and to promote an immune response. This, in turn, promotes the production of C -reactive protein (CRP) in the liver. So don’t blame your throat, tonsil etc. infection. It is a way the body tries to protect you.
However, if your body is constantly over-reactive and ‘busy’ with fighting some ongoing toxins such as pollution (from smoking?), pesticides in food, mental stress, radiation such as from your wifi and mobile phone and computers and all kinds of stressors, it will trigger what we call low-grade chronic inflammation.
Note: Psycho-spiritually, if you are over-reactive or gets irritated by the people around you, it will also trigger low-grade chronic inflammation in the physical body. So, learning to let go and forgive are crucial for health.
In other words, your body is constantly busy fighting something and have not enough energy to regenerate and repair cells and tissues to protect you from cancer, heart disease, and age-related disorders.
Inflammation is a strong risk factor for heart and autoimmune diseases and can lead to the development of cancers. CRP is the hallmark of inflammation and is used to measure the degree of systemic inflammation. This is why I always look at your CRP reading rather than cholesterol. Your cholesterol may be ok but if CRP is high, there is a higher risk of stroke and heart attack and even Alzheimer’s disease and cancer, independent of cholesterol profile.
With constant exposure to toxins, how can we modulate this inflammation? One good solution is to take a herb supplement to modulate it and at the same time promote regeneration of tissues. To be effective, a wholistic approach is necessary. I spelt out this wholistic approach in my book Leaf to Life (Buy now at Amazon books).
My Phytolec, a 30 x organic fresh juice extract (most products in the market is dried herb with low extraction ratio) of the herb Emblica officinalis is clinically proven to modulate inflammation, and thus lower CRP. This extract is so safe and can be taken long-term even for pregnant women.
You can take it for three months with a wholistic protocol (I can coach you on this if you book a consultation with me) and do the CRP test to find out.
